The Myanmar Information Management Unit / MIMU is a service of the United Nations Development Programme provided in collaboration with the United Nations Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator. It supports the information management needs of humanitarian, development, and peace-focused actors across Myanmar to strengthen analysis and decision-making.
MIMU fills a critical gap in the local context, providing timely and impartial resources for emergency preparedness and response as well as humanitarian, development and peace-focused activities. With its unique country-wide, cross-sectoral remit, and close collaboration with a wide variety of stakeholders, MIMU demonstrates the nexus of HDP approaches in practice. The Unit works in close collaboration with UNDP’s Myanmar Development Observatory which offers analysis of the changing situation, as well as other UNDP projects related to Digital Transformation and Innovation and Civil Society.
MIMU safeguards the common data and information repository for development, humanitarian, and peace actors in Myanmar through gathering and compiling data from various sources on relevant sectors, countrywide, and making this information accessible to the wider group of stakeholders. MIMU works closely with the various entities and agencies active in IM across different sectors/geographic areas, in particular UNOCHA (on data preparedness for emergencies and support to humanitarian activities), and UNDP’s Myanmar Development Observatory (on provision of analytics on vulnerability, the SDGs and development issues).
1. Data repository and Information products:
MIMU seeks to ensure a comprehensive, reliable, and accessible body of knowledge to support situational analysis, operational planning, and inter-agency coordination among humanitarian, development, and peace actors active in Myanmar. To this end MIMU provides a country-wide repository of relevant data and documents, and provides quality, standardized information products and services to support decision-making around planning and resource allocation.
2. Technical assistance and coordination:
MIMU demonstrates robust IM approaches, promoting the creation and use of common data standards based on international best practice, and building capacity through technical support and training in order to expand the IM capacity of humanitarian, development, and peace-focused actors.
3. Monitoring and analysis:
MIMU provides a wide range of tools to support common situational monitoring and analysis, reflecting the countrywide situation as well as the diversity and differences across administrative areas and different populations.
4. Networking and liaison:
MIMU maintains relationships with a wide variety of stakeholders (including inter-agency working groups, civil society agencies etc) to promote strengthened information exchange, use of appropriate IM tools and improved IM support to humanitarian, development, and peace-related activities in Myanmar.
The MIMU Manager will be based in Yangon with occasional field travel which will be undertaken in line with UN security protocols.
